    Press conference

    LOVE

    The second to last pic of them walking down the red carpet reminds me of the shot a photographer usually get of a bride and groom walking out after the wedding church ceremony - the look of love and happiness radiating through their faces!

    Re: LOVE

    It's the photo I've been trying to find for days without a watermark. I'll keep looking for a higher quality version. It's also nice to have Matt's publicist, Jennifer Allen, in the picture as she's a big part of their public life. Matt's also made two references to her this week (Unicef and Leno).

    Re: LOVE

    The reference to his publicist texting him the next day after he spoke to Jerry and asking whether he agreed to emcee the event. On Leno he spoke about Jen being backstage during his first Leno appearance.

    Re: taking in pants

    There are certainly a few versions of the story, including where Matt thought George had changed his clothes but Lucy suggested maybe he had put on weight. I'm sure it's exaggerated for the sake of the press tour.

    Video

    I hate jokes being told at the start of a press tour as they then dominate the questions of a lazy journalist for the rest of a junket and no decent questions are asked.

    http://www.etonline.com/movies/142642_George_Clooney_Matt_Damon_Cate_Blanchett_The_Monuments_Men/

    George calls Matt here one of the sweetest men on earth.

    Will anyone ask any questions about future projects? Kris Tapley was going to mention Interstellar.

    The Matt/Ben clip from the Globes:

    Re: Video

    yea, i wish they would ask about projects or just anything different from one another. even at the press conference when they were int he same room with each other they'd ask the same questions in row that were just previously thoroughly answered. geez

    Re: Video

    I totally agree, that's why I don't like Twitter - so many people just repeat/copy what was said, and there's no real communication. It seems more popular to be superficial and ask questions that were already answered in the published media than be authentic and interested in the people they are interviewing. M..

    Re: Video

    The vapidity of the questions is indeed, staggering. I would like to try to pin it down to problems with translation, obviously there were many foreign journalists present. But even that wouldn't adequately explain it. It's like they're five years old and have no power to reason.

    No wonder stars hate press tours. It's like being confronted with a wall of stupid.

    Yep, Australian HFPA journalist who annoyed lots of celebs with photos at the after-party and is in the background of the Ben/Matt moment at the Globes.
